Panthers TE Greg Olsen: The plan is still to play Sunday.

Fantasy Impact:

Olsen has been a popular stash player on rosters over the last few weeks with the anticipation of his return this week. And it looks like that will be the case. Be sure to check our rankings and projected points as injured players returning their first week sometimes need a week to get back to form so Olsen may come with some risks.

Scouting Report

Week 12 at New York Jets

Greg Olsen has been out since Week 2 with a foot injury, but he was removed from injured reserve on Monday, and he’s expected to be active this week against the Jets. Olsen has been one of the most consistent fantasy options at the tight end position over the past few years, with over 1,000 yards in each of the past three seasons. If you stuck it out with him all year on your roster, or if you got him off waivers ahead of time, he should make it worth your while.

This week, Olsen has a nice matchup against a Jets defense that has allowed 6 touchdowns and the eighth-most fantasy points per game to the tight end position this year. Expect quarterback Cam Newton to look to his trusty tight end early and often, and for a nice comeback game from the veteran.
